For now I find this solution (on StackExschange, not tested) but may be You propose a much...
Hi FreeBSD Gurus!
We have FreeBSD (12 but planning to update to 13) installed on a old (born in 2014) server:
PCIe 3.0 motherboard Intel C600 Series with 2xXeon 8-Core CPU
with a 6 of PCIe v.3
4 of x8 slots (dedicated to CPU 1)
2 of x16 slots (dedicated to CPU 2)
Both CPU are:
Hi, all FreeBSD Gurus!
Could You be so please to explain:

Hi, hardware gurus!
How exactly BSD pf performance (in matter of low latency, high PPS, etc) depend on bus frequency, main CPU frequency and L2/L3 cache size in multi-package (mean physical multi-CPU, like Intel E5500/5600, E5-2000 series) server systems that intend working as border firewall...
I'd like to buy 2 SFP+ cards and this HP 581201-B21 is dirt cheap compared to the alternatives. Last year it was 2.5x more expensive, so it looks like a really good deal. Idk why it became that cheap, probably it is retired. I am curious if I could use this with the latest FreeBSD? It would be...

The wireless card I'm using is a Sabrent PCI-802N Ralink RT3062F PBG26220E0
I tested the card in Linux and was able to connect another access point and retrieve webpages; in Linux it used the rt2800pci driver; though I didn't set it up as an AP.
I have three Sun 501-6522-07 cards in a Dell Poweredge 2850 and they are recognized and configurable inside FreeBSD 10.3 however no traffic is sent out or received by the NICs. I have checked /boot/kernel and if_cas.ko wasn't there. Am I correct to assume that file needs to be loaded into the...

FreeBSD 10.3 is not recognizing the NIC card. pciconf shows that the NIC card is not recognized. I find the following message on dmesg
